The US Navy has just received a revamped "Doomsday" plane that has been kitted out with new communications hardware to connect the President's "big red button" to the nation's nuclear forces.

Defense contractor Northrop Grumman recently returned the first E-6B Mercury aircraft to the US Navy after installing five new kits onboard that improve its “aircraft command, control, and communications functions,” according to an announcement on the company’s website. 

The renovation was all part of a $111 million contract between Northrop Grumman and the US Navy.

I'd say if it ever came to that I'd be a firm believer in man made climate change :D
